Trucking accidents are responsible for the death of more than 5,000 people every year, along with more than 100,000 serious injuries. In a significant number of trucking accidents, the automobile driver is not to blame. The negligence can lie with multiple parties, including: the truck driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer of the truck, the loading company or the person or company responsible for maintenance. Because there can be such a variety of defendants, trucking accident claims are typically much more complex than accidents involving only automobiles.
It can be difficult for the victim of a trucking accident to determine whether to settle their claim early on—probably for less than a jury would award—or to spend the next year or more involved in litigation in hopes of a larger settlement. Of course only you and your attorney can make such an important decision, and it is crucial that you allow your attorney’s experience and knowledge regarding trucking accidents to influence that decision.
